Homespun has just released a banjo tab book to accompany Steve Martin’s recent CD, The Crow.
The 40 page book contains transcriptions for Steve’s opening breaks or primary solos on all 15 tunes, plus Tony Trischka’s harmony banjo parts for the title track and Wally on The Run. All the solos (3 finger and clawhammer) were transcribed by Trischka.
These banjo solos should be within the reach of most advanced beginners or intermediate pickers, and notes from Steve about playing each one are also included.
The book sells for $19.95 and is available wherever banjo instruction materials are sold, or directly from Homespun online. You can also pick up both the book and the CD for $29.95.
Homespun has recently begun to offer online distribution of their videos, starting with some older titles. Using software developed by Mod Machine, any of their titles offered for digital distribution can be downloaded for instant viewing on your computer. You’ll need to use this software any time you view the video, but you won’t need to be online to do so once it has downloaded to your computer.
They have 53 titles available for download at present and are adding new ones regularly.
